Summer Shopping Linky Party

Hi All - It's my first linky party! Ladybug's Teacher Files is having a linky party about school shopping in June. Although I haven't thought much about school since ending about 2 weeks ago, I did purchase some items while on vacation in Branson last week. You can link to the party at Ladybug's Teacher Files! Last April I had my second and third graders do historical fiction book studies of Titanic books in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the ship going down. They absolutely got into the topic! There was a Titanic museum in Branson, and while I didn't have time to go through it, I did hit the gift shop and got some great items. I found a replica of a newspaper from that time period, as well as a package of replicas of a telegram, dinner menu, sheet music, passenger booklet, and advertising flyers. I also purchased the book The Titanic Sinks by Thomas Conklin to add to my collection. And - I had a 10% off coupon for all of this from a Travelhost magazine I found in our hotel's lobby! Score!

You can find a free reading response trifold for the book Tonight on the Titanic at my TPT store by clicking on this link: Titanic trifold. The template for the trifold was made by Jessica Winston and I added the questions and graphic.

  2. Thanks for hosting the party Kristen! It's fun to see all the cool things people are buying. Am I able to change the "name" on my listing to my blog's name, rather than my own name?
